|Nose||The wine shows the distinctive aromatic profile which makes the Carignan wines from Priorat stand out. Aromas of blackcurrants and mulberries, together with some remembrances of flowers, bitter cocoa, spices and aromatic herbs, enhanced by an deep mineral background.|
Though still young, this wine from Celler Pla has an excellent definition, a linear passage and smooth tannins. Profoundly mineral, with dim notes of spices, a suggestion of flowers and some tips of aromatic herbs. Very long, uplifting finish.
